of the united states. >>> the obama campaign is calling that an out of context attack. the numbers they say mr. biden buried line including that that reflect high unemployment rising debt and smaller paychecks over the last four years. >> newt gingrich is talking about. >> newt beginnihe went on the r what he has to do. >>> it is a clear-cut situation. romney has to be clear and factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president of the united states. rom hee will t romney will try r call him. romney is going to have to communicate past layer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that i think he could have a very good night and you could see a very good race by thursday morning. >> later in the show you are going to hear from romney's former debate coach who is with him during the primary. oo tonight's debate is exactly what we would like to hear from you on today. what would you like to hear from the candidates tonight? send your comments over to us. tweet them to us at foxfriendsfirst@foxnews.com. >> those are the top stories making
own state, colorado, our latest poll showing president obama with a five-point lead over mitt romney. 5 50-45%. the political landscape there changed since george bush won that state. president obama though carrying it by nine points in '08. in your opinion, what has changed? >> what's changed in colorado is we have a lot more high-tech industry. we have a lot of renewable energy and solar. and we have voters who really care about the environment and the economy. and president obama, his policies really appeal to those voters a lot more. it's interesting that now it's a five-point lead because for about six months, up until a week or two ago, president obama had a narrow one to two-point le lead, so that really shows that president obama is breaking out in some of the key swing states like colorado. >> we shall all be watching tonight to see how things go down there in denver. diana degette, thank you, i appreciate it. >>> up next, painting denver pink. planned parenthood launches an anti romney blitz in colorado. i'm going to talk to the organization's president. >>> plus, bringing

obama won this state in 2008 by the slimmest of margins with help from a large african-american turnout. four years later in a down economy it looks like his challenge will be even greater. >> woodruff: and we talk with national public radio's greg allen. he focuses on the outreach to hispanics in the tar heel state. >> ifill: then margaret warner updates the investigation into the assault on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> woodruff: we look at new findings showing australia's great barrier reef has lost half its coral in the last 27 years. >> ifill: and we close with snapshots of three of this year's macarthur genius award winners, each with a unique view of war. >> people tend to look at the military, they tend to look at war and they tend to look at conflict as something very black and white. it's not like that at all. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: creating new enriching experiences. through intel's philosophy of "invest you for the future" we're helping bring these new capabilities to market. we're investin
: tonight the economy takes center stage as mitt romney and barack obama face the states. they are here for our debate warm-up. is from the getting more specific about the tax plan? we think so. we have the details. welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i'm gerri willis. tonight is the night. obama versus romney. this same stage. the expectations are sky-high. it seems like all obama had to do is show up. with more on this neil cavuto from denver. can romney meet these expectations? >> they are high expectations. the pressure is on him because of these polls. i often think that a lot is put on the challenger. sometimes he can benefit by showing up and sharing the stage with the president of the united states. already on equal footing with him in that respect. he does have the advantage of a dicey economy going forward. the president's supporters say it is not as it had been, and there is some economic news today that portends may be the worst is behind it. but i agree with that. if you want to be in game changer this is the night. and no one doubts the earlier point. he has
was not a good preparation for general election this year. anyway, in swing states the obama campaign has bombarded voters, as you said, with this powerful ad going after romney for his 47% putdown. let's take a look. >> 47% of the americans who vote for the president who are dependent, who believe they're victims, who believe the government has to care for them, who believes they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it, and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not to worry about those -- i'll never take care of them. they should take care responsibility and take care of themselves. >> you look at this analytical, only three or four breaks, romney would be ahead right now, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go back, i would
states and nationally that i think caught barack obama sort of at the apex of the bounce he had received post-convention and post a couple bad weeks for mitt romney and mitt romney at the nader of where he could possibly be in a race where you have the country as divided as it is. the fact that things are moving back towards at the national level, 49/46, i think should not be terribly surprising. i continue to believe the problem for mitt romney is not national polling. it is swing state polling. nbc/marist, you put out data this morning, close in several states but still in ohio, mitt romney down by 8 points among likely voters. i think that's very problematic for him. if he loses ohio getting to 270 electoral votes becomes not impossible but much more difficult. >> at the same time in the national poll, right track up to 40%, still not great, but it's the highest number we've seen in a number of years. this is better for the president. the enthusiasm gap still favors the president. >> yeah. the right track number i think is fascinating, andrea, because there's no obvious reason in the
for a winner take all seat, the president of the united states. the first tv debate is always a great moment of anticipation as americans get the chance to draw direct comparisons, mitt romney is trailing barack obama in the polls in a number of key states but the president is under attack for failing to deliver jobs for voters. nowhere is that felt more than reno, nevada where the unemployment rate is the highest in the country. >> in the city nevada, reno is a little less vegas than las vegas it might be little but its voters could have a big impact on the elections. few places in america were worse hit by recession. inform has the highest unemployment rate in the country. barack obama won here comfortably four years ago. this time it will be closer. >> you're going to have a big choice to make, nevada. and it's not just choice between two candidates or two political parties. it's a choice between two different paths for this country. >> this is the other path. mitt romney, the businessman turned politician who is promising to turn the economy around slipped a little in the polls but it's
targeting latinos, especially in swing states like colorado. the latest poll gives obama 70% of the hispanic vote. romney has backpedaled and the written policy with a much softer focus on illegal immigration. some say this is a chance to touch home the new message. >> throw away the rhetoric, the language that turns people off, and talk about it in a real leadership way. >> as night falls, the intense preparations are at an end. they will soon face each other for a debate but some say will shake up the race for the white house. >> so, how significant is tonight's debate? i am joined by the national editor of "a vanity fair" magazine. thank you very much. obviously, these debates have been analyzed for their significance. given the context of this election, how significant is tonight? >> it could be significant. the balance of the evidence suggests that the challenger has to gain in the first debate. he has the most -- obviously, mitt romney has the most to gain. he also has the most to lose. if he cannot show himself as a possible candidate, he will not turn around the trajectory. president

states that you know especially well? >> well, pennsylvania, i think the voter i.d. law had the potential to affect 50, 100,000 votes. that's wiped away now. pretty clear that president obama is going to carry pennsylvania. what the surprise is ohio. always a tossup state. even in the poll today, which showed governor romney narrowing it in virginia and florida. ohio state at eight points f p if ohio folks don't move in the next days after the debate, time for romney folks to cash in ohio. >> you take the media hit for a couple of days there, but ohio, pennsylvania, they represent a type of voter or a group of voters would know romney needs. tries to make up ground on the auto bailouts saying that is not exactly what i meant at the time, i was really in line with what played out there, we know it was not but the type of voter or the group of voters in ohio that we have talked so much about, white males in particular, working class, middle class people, they are there in that state. >> well, they are, but take pennsylvania. president obama carried by 11% in '08. >> yeah. >> yet he lost 11

nationally and in some key battleground states. "nbc news-wall street journal poll" finding president obama is in the lead now with 49% vote compared with governor romney 46%. that is down from the five point lead the president had earlier in the month. mary katharine ham, editor-at-large for hotair.com. fox news contributor. juan williams is fox news political analyst. he is out in denver. good to see you both. mary katherine, the president, however has a commanding lead among women. why is that? what is he going to do about it? what is romney going to do about it and is romney going to try to address that tonight? >> well i think in 2010 there was a swing towards republicans among independents and among women. the republicans actually won them in 2010. i think that freaks democrats out rightly and they went on the rampage on this messaging, you heard the war on women theme all summer long which was mostly fabricated and, i think it had some success. they have been worried about, mitt romney doesn't have to win women. what he has to do is peel off some of obama's voters. they were rightly
in the state. president obama won by 14,000 votes. he carried a 100,000 vote margin in charlotte which is where mr. biden was. he had a narrow margin of victory, more than any other state. in charlotte unemployment is above 10%. we'll see how they do, it's tough to win against those numbers. jamie: those numbers are seen in many places,en it will be interesting to hear about what they say about those swing states that count. bill: a new report on events leading up to that deadly terrorist attack in libya. did the government deny requests for additional security. jamie: there are concerns about pane obama administration plan to buy a state prison facility. it's a state prison being bought by the federal government. some fear it could house accused terrorists moved from gitmo. bill: what do both mean need to say to win over voters in the middle. ed rollins back in 1984. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i'm not going to exploit for political purposes my opponents youth and inexperience.

there barack obama has a pretty good lead right now in that battleground state, suzanne. >> i know at the debate tonight it will be focused on domestic issues. when you look at both of these counties here, of course, one the incumbent, the other one who is trying to make the case that his policies would be better than the president's, who has the advantage? >> well, you know, that's a good question because they both say that they have the answers to try to turn the economy around xshgs it really comes down to appealing to we think about 6% of the electorate right now who hasn't decided who they're going to vote for. of that 6% they live in nine states, including the state that i'm standing in right now. the other states that we're really focussing on as we just talked about, virginia, florida, ohio, it's also nevada, iowa, new hampshire. it's all across the spectrum of who these candidates are trying to reach out to, suzanne. >> and right where you rshgs of course, you mention in colorado nine electoral votes. critical to get them to the magic nm number needed to win. president oba
of the united states. you saw this on fox news last night. a video of president obama giving a speech to a group of black ministers in which he engaged in some pandering, adopted stronger african-american accent. the problem is he's already been elected president. you can't argue against obama saying don't vote for him, he has a secret plan to destroy america. he's been president for four years. quite seriously, you have to run against the obama record. you can't convince americans that there's something more to be frightened of in an obama second term than they already saw when he had 60 votes in the senate. >> i think when conservatives do that and certainly that videotape was so hyped and then there really wasn't much in it. it really takes away the credibility from the conservative argument. what conservatives ought to be spending all of their time on is why our ideas work better to lift people out of poverty, to grow jobs to make this country stronger and better. that's what conservatives should spebd their spends their time on. not president obama talking to a church. news flash. >> news f

. >> reporter: with polls showing mr. obama leading in the swing states top aides encouraged the president to be himself, don't change what's working one senior adviser said. for his part romney's advisers say he's prepared, that he just needs to convey his message clearly on the biggest stage of his political career. and throughout the primary debates, brian, mitt romney would write his father's name, george romney on the top of his notepad, his father being his inspiration. he'd write "o" to remind him to focus on plb president obama. but tonight he probably won't need any reminders. >> peter alexander, thanks. >>> now over to our political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd also at that time venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns view it this way. the candidate that's spent more time litigating the other guy's plans will feel as if they're winning. the campaign that feels like spending more time defending their own plans will feel like they're losing. one lesson that president obama a
's still down by 8 percentage points in our poll in the state of ohio, which is a problem for this reason. look at the map of swing states. if you look at the ones where mitt romney is running within 4 points of president obama, places like florida, virginia, iowa, missouri where he's ahead, north carolina where he's even or ahead, you add all those to the solid states for mitt montana and the leaning states for mitt romney, he's still only at 263 electorate votes. he needs to bring ohio or other swe swing state, nevada, new hampshire. he's got an unparallel opportunity tonight to come on stage with the president of the united states and make his case, larry. >> john, the wall street journal poll and others have shown that romney has closed the gap a little pit with president obama at least nationwide and some of the swing states. to what do you attribute this closi closing? is it the benghazi problem, the middle east problem or what? >> i think it more about mitt romney returning to equilibrium after some of the blows that he took. democrats got a surge from their convention. romney took
obama may be ahead in the polls in mean swing states, but nationally, the race for president remains extremely tight. the president leads mitt romney by 3% among likely voters. the poll's margin of error is 3.1%. so that puts the race in a virtual tie. the president led his republican rival by five percentage points two weeks ago. he has a much wider lead in you consider registered voters. president obama leads romney by 7% in that category. >>> mitt romney's campaign hoping to get a boost from comments vice president joe biden made yesterday. biden warned supporters in north carolina that romney and his running mate paul ryan would raise taxes on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> of course the middle class has been buried. they're being bear rayed by regulations, by taxes, by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> vice president biden later tried to clarify his comments by saying the middle class was b e buried by policies mitt romney and paul ryan supporte
